400th anniversary Royal Vopak


Celebration of Royal Vopak’s 400 Year By Sounding The Gong

This year, Royal Vopak (ticker symbol: VPK) is celebrating its 400th anniversary. To mark this occasion, the opening gong is sounded by a “colleague” from the 17th century in the presence of Royal Vopak’s Executive Board and staff members of the Dutch Vopak terminals.

Eelco Hoekstra, Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO of Royal Vopak: “Our 400th anniversary in 2016 is a unique moment. We would like to celebrate this with all our staff and other parties involved. In our celebrations, we place emphasis on connecting our past, present and future. It is great to see that we are still, 400 years later, standing on the quayside for our customers to facilitate worldwide product flows. And over a period that has seen such immense change. Time and time again the company has been able to adapt to the changing society and maintain its relevance. That is a great source of inspiration and an ongoing challenge for the future.”

Royal Vopak is the world’s leading independent tank storage provider, specialized in the storage and transhipment of bulk liquid products, gases and oil products. Vopak has a worldwide network of tank terminals.
